How to find 15% of an amount
Example: If the number selected is 43: Multiply by 3: 3 × 43 = 129. Divide by 2: 129/2 = 64.5. Move the decimal point one place to the left: 6.45. So 15% of 43 = 6.45.

comparing fractions
Find what both the denominators can go into then change it: 2/3 or 3/5 change the denominator to 15. Then times the numerator with what it needs to get to 15: 3/5 = 9/ 15 and you do the same to the other fraction

Simplify expressions and factorise
To work it out: Write down the expression Equation: x + 5 + 3x - 7 + 9x + 3 - 4x Collect all the terms together which are alike. Remember that each term comes with an operation (+, -) which goes before it. Equation: x + 3x + 9x - 4x + 5 - 7 + 3 Simpl

Substitute numbers into an expression
For example , what is the value of 4p3 when p = 2? We know that 4p3 means 4 × p × p × p, so when p = 2 we substitute this into the expression: 4 × 2 × 2 × 2 (or 4 × 23) = 32

Tessellate a shape
A Tessellation (or Tiling) is when we cover a surface with a pattern of flat shapes so that there are no overlaps or gaps. A regular tessellation is a pattern made by repeating a regular polygon. A semi-regular tessellation is made of two or more reg

Describe a correlation of a scatter graph
With scatter plots we often talk about how the variables relate to each other. This is called correlation. There are three types of correlation: positive, negative, and none (no correlation). Positive Correlation: as one variable increases so does th
